3 1977-1980 FER­RARI 308 GTB/GTS

WHY IT’S SO AF­FORD­ABLE There are plenty of them about, but sud­denly val­ues for this 1970s icon are get­ting red hot.

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Five Best Ferrari Buys -

Fer­rari has built a lot of stun­ning cars – think 250GT SWB, 250 Cal­i­for­nia, Day­tona, F40 and a slew of other multi-mil­lion-pound mu­seum pieces and track stars. All great, of course, and the very essence of Enzo.

Still, the one car that the world knows as the Fer­rari sports car they could see them­selves driv­ing is the de­light­ful and gor­geous 308 GTB hard­top and its targa-roofed GTS sta­ble­mate.

The beau­ti­ful Pin­in­fa­rina lines, those dis­tinc­tive rear but­tresses and air in­takes, the sim­ple mo­tifs formed by the wheels and tail lights – they all spell clas­sic Fer­rari. It’s pow­er­ful, re­spon­sive and ex­cit­ing to drive. In short, a mas­ter­piece that goes like the clap­pers thanks to its 2926cc V8 en­gine. We just had to make it the one Fer­rari worth tak­ing out a small sec­ond mort­gage for. Early GRP-bod­ied cars com­mand a big pre­mium for their pu­rity these days, so the steel-bod­ied ones from 1977-80 of­fer bet­ter value.
